Microsoft SharePoint

What is Microsoft SharePoint?

Microsoft 365 Management is a single extensibility platform for managing Office 365 tasks, including service communications, security, compliance, reporting, and auditing.

SharePoint is included in Microsoft 365. SharePoint allows teams to easily build team sites and share files, data, news, and resources across PCs, Macs, and mobile devices.

Why Should You Use the Microsoft SharePoint Connector?

The Microsoft SharePoint connector provides visibility into SharePoint activity such as creating files, accessing files, downloads, and uploads. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your data loss policies

  • find vulnerabilities quickly and remediate

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Microsoft SharePoint REST API and ingests only meta-data about Microsoft SharePoint assets. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
